However, for those that have not researched, let me explain why DVC is not a good choice if you plan to trade. Many ts are excellent traders at a fraction of the cost of DVC. For example, I am booked into Harborside this coming Labour Day week using a 2 bedroom ts in the Starwood system in what would likely be considered DVC's choice season. A 2 bedroom contract at OKW (as an example) would have annual fees apx. $130 higher than mine. On the resale market, the OKW contract would cost apx. 3 times as much as my timeshare. Bottom line for me, DVC is great for those that plan to stay onsite the great majority of times and a bad choice for those that plan to trade.

DVC is definitely not the cheapest when you compare it to other time shares. However not all time shares offer the same level of flexibility as DVC. However if you place a dollar value on paying cash for a trade and using your points for a trade the point values are very reasonable for DVC trades. There is options for everyone. You have found one that works for your family and we found one that works for ours

Just a reminder to all..

The ONLY place on the DIS for rent/trade transactions is the DVC Rent/Trade board that is very strictly managed.

Please keep in mind that this is for your protection as much as anything.

Thanks

Knox

Just to add to that. Make sure you READ all the sticky's before posting in the rent/trade forum as CanadianGuy said it is very strictly managed. Bad experiences rarely happen but they do happen. If you choose to rent out points or rent someone's points Disney nor the DIS will get involved if their are problems with the transaction.

Just noticed this was stickied now.

We are members at OKW, and have been vacationing there for 10 years now. We just got back last night, so I'm in WDW withdrawal today.

52 now. I think if the dollar stays strong there will plenty more of us soon.

I'm thinking of adding-on when we go down at the end of Feb but might wait for GCV. It's normally easier and cheaper for flights to LA from Saskatoon then to Florida.

I own at OKW and took my first trip in January 2008. Stayed at SSR.

Working a stay for August 2008 at AKL, and possibly a couple of nights at BW.

SSR owner checking in! (just noticed this thread in the stickies)

We bought in Dec 2006 - first use of points was OKW GV in Feb 2007 - heading down for our 2nd trip on points next week to SSR. It will be nice to finally make it home. Our 3rd trip will be a 4 day trip WITHOUT THE KIDS in March. (4th trip is already being planned - going with best friends Feb 2009)

We are teetering on the fence, actually DH is jumping up and down on his end, and I'm just about there. Does anyone know what the next incentives are going to be, or if they are going to extend the current rates with developer points??

What UY should we have if we plan to always travel in Dec/Jan?? I'm a little confused on that.

55 now.

Cdn Tink, I was on the fence for a few years too! That being said I have no regrets.

I don't think the use year really matters as much now that the banking rules have changed, others will correct me if I'm wrong. I have a Sept UY and it seems right for my needs. I like to travel to WDW in Dec, Jan, Feb and Mar because the weather here sucks so it's nice to get away. With my UY being Sept, I have until April 30th to decide if I'm going to bank my points, which is fine because I'm usually have had my Disney fix by then.

No worries, what else can I do in -30 weather.

I was searching for this thread after my Oct trip but couldn't get the search function to work for me, Knox got the ball rolling again by finding it for us!
